Hail to Bob Baranaskas, Leader of Youth Sailing

This area lost a great friend of youth sailing on April 5, 2009. Bob Baranaskas died when his World War II fighter plane crashed into the ocean off Fire Island’s Smith Point. Many Cow Harbor Sailing Team (CHST) and Northport Bay Sailing Association (NBSA) parents, sailors and coaches share their remembrances of a man who had an unbelievable impact on the lives of many people.
It was early this decade that CHST evolved into LISOT (Long Island Sound Optimist Team) under the leadership of John Hammel.
